Re: Why bother watching anymore? 


All I know is it's gonna be awesome having a shot at signing Flacco as a UFA. ;)

Stabba Killah Man going out as an invisible on field jewry ramora is pretty funny. Worst LBer on the field. Whose gonna die tonite?

Refs let the DBs hammer the WRs all night but that was a brutal non call. Still, Flacco got creamed oob earlier.

How is Phil Simms SB color commentator? Turrble.

Great game tho.

Niners got hosed. That DB had both arms wrapped around Crabtree while the ball was in the air. You could see both his hands on Crabtree's back as he was bear-hugging him. It was blatently obvious holding, but the ref was afraid to make the call and basically give the 49ers the game with a first down on the 1-yard line. No ref ever wants to decide who wins and loses with a penalty flag, so he just choked on his whistle. 

The announcers were pathetic. They're not allowed to question the refs calls so they made lame remarks about how "they were both pushing each other". Right. Crabtree was wrapped up and trying to break his arms loose to reach for the ball. 

Flacco will be franchised if they can't reach a contract agreement. They won't let him walk as a free agent, not a Super Bowl MVP in his prime. He has them over a barrel. Hopefully they'll have to pay him so much that they can't afford some of the veterans they have now. 

Hard to say if the Browns are miles or light years from contention given so many unknowns. We have no idea whether Chud will be a great, good, mediocre, or crappy head coach. Weeden is still unknown. The head coach and the QB are two people most important to a team's success and we don't know what we've got there. 

Also, with Lombardi in the mix on player selection, that's another unknown. This is the guy that gave us Craig Powell for Eric Metcalf.

The 4th down non-call for interference against Roddy White in the NFC Championship was every bit as bad.  Niners made it to the bowl on a blown call, and lost the bowl on a blown call.  Sometimes you get crap like that, for example, the Steelers/Seahawks bowl was a total waste of time as well.

The last three calls were questionable at best. Gore and Vernon don't tough the ball at money time, not sure I can understand it?
